I've been looking for a Hokus Pokus machine for a bit, have had a few come along but am holding out for a nice one, and recently got a message from user Plusecon. Now the account had been registered about a day ago and the message asked me to email someone else, so I was skeptical but I've also received tips from other people about this machine before that were legit.
Anyway, sent the email to see what would happen and got the following message back, screenshots attached
"Harrison - Thanks for writing. Apologies for the delay in response. I just got a chance to check my mail. Yes, I have a 1970’s Vintage Bally Hokus Pokus Pinball Machine for sale. It is in great and working condition other than some minor things that need to be replaced. All the bulbs works perfectly. It is a free play machine. Price is $675 plus Walmart fee, price includes shipping. I'm in South Carolina and will ship via UPS. What is your complete shipping address?"
Checked google and all his pictures came from a sold listing on offerup. So between that and somehow shipping a machine via UPS, I'm pretty sure there's a scammer going through the wanted listings here. Did reply asking for a picture of the side of the machine, see how they deal with that since there wasn't one in the listing on offerup.
